MES interface

So simple: Integrated production planning thanks to TDM/MES interface

Plan all your production resources and optimize your processes. MES integration with the appropriate interfaces from TDM Systems offers accurate detailed production planning.

Our TDM/MES interface

Accurate planning and preparation of orders on the shopfloor are crucial for efficient production. The TDM/MES interface enables exactly that. With this MES interface and integration, you always know which tools are available and which tools actually need to be prepared for the machine. When should you start setting up an order? The interface also shows you this.

Furthermore, integrated detailed planning of all production resources requires verified tool data. Your MES manages the data for all of the production resources. The system often does not manage the production equipment's data. But it is precisely this data that can ultimately make the difference.

Data for efficient production thanks to MES interfaces

  • Tool data enables you to implement a complete continuous improvement program (CIP)
  • MES integration in TDM transfers TDM tool offset data to the machine control system in a reliable manner
  • The user can synchronize machine and tool data via the MES in TDM and make it available for production

Comprehensive functions for the entire production process

  • MES integration with TDM plans all production equipment, including gages and fixtures in connection with MES planning
  • The interface provides NC documents
  • Difference lists compare the orders' tool requirements and, on this basis, the TDM/MES interface calculates the tool requirements
  • The interface supports order planning by checking tool availability
  • The user optimizes their setup processes by updating the order-specific tool loading/unloading lists

The advantages regarding TDM/MES interfaces are impressive

Cost savings
Tools, fixtures and gages are on the machine in time for setting up. Tool-related machine downtimes are a thing of the past.

Optimizing the processes
Detailed planning and tool provision with offset transfer go hand in hand.

Central database
Returning machine data allows an optional tool life calculation. The central database ensures continuously improved NC planning.

An impressive example – FORCAM FORCE™

Integrating TDM into FORCAM FORCE™ implements holistic optimization of processes, from ERP to PLM to the machine. This enables a flexible connection of machines and adaptable evaluations. This, in turn, means supporting the shopfloor with process and product data.

Unbeatable cooperation

The interface TDM - FORCAM FORCE™  supports order-oriented tool provision at production level. The real-time data from the machine supports the tool logistics. Thanks to the transparent real-time data, the machine operator is more flexible and can reduce machine downtimes. All necessary functions are available to the operator. This enables them to display all process steps from a product and order view.

Thanks to TDM's central database, there is no longer any need for multiple entries to forward tool data in various forms to the process-related systems. The FORCAM FORCE™ shopfloor terminal displays the necessary information directly. The employee provides feedback on this and displays the necessary functions from an order and process perspective. Deviations are immediately visible, and production-related and technological evaluations can be displayed. This increases productivity and efficiency.
